Should Utopia Temple do a make-over?

I don't mean just add a new section or two, but a complete make-over. new colours, new pictures, more modern type stuff. I've been here for 4 years I think and I don't remember seeing any changes other than the top picture and the addition of a few threads.

I'd like to see some more neutral colours, some greys, blacks, and some vibrant colours like orange and neon blue/green. Mabey make the user profiles more (I can't think of the word) informative.

Nah, I like it the way it is. User profiles are plenty informative, and I really like the colour scheme. And the layout is superb - not cluttered with bullshit like most forums around.

I was leaning more towards different colours rather than totally different layout. I've seen other forums and they're crazy.

Just keep it the way it is.

I have seen enough "Change" already in the world. Makes me sick.

You guys are saying "leave it as it is", "it's fine" and all that. But, would you guys be willing to deal with a more generic skin if it makes things easier for Brother Green? I think he posted somewhere that integrating new software and updating vBulletin takes months because of the highly modified, personalized skin.

Edit reason: I put a "." instead of a "?". Silly me.

Naah. There's something very familiar with the way UT is now.
But if people had any ideas they could show I'd be listening.

Would it bring more users here? No, its declining at teh pace of utopias own decline.
Would it improve the posting for the users here? I doubt it.
So no big changes, although some new colors or something could be nice I guess.

I'd love a sort of inverted theme / skin, where the text was on a brighter (though not too bright like white) background, as it's easier on my eyes..

After reading UT for a while, I see white-ish lines before my eyes when I look at stuff

Actually, the colors you see when typing a message are nice.. black text on a light gray background

I think forums allow the user to chose skin, so it might be possible to keep the old one for those who prefer that?


Hmmmm... I think I need a new signature

Sounds kind of like spending a lot of money fixing up an abandoned home on the wrong side of town, IMHO.

Alright, it's not that bad. BG's a good businessman and prolly understands any major change is not going to yield a good return on investment.

A make over wouldn't be the best idea, I'd rather just have a few basic choices on a skin selector. Everyone here is already used to this skin anyway.

If all else fails, call someone a troll.
that can be fixed... / Ć
